Ban Anglo-Saxon? The Push to remove Anglo-Saxons from academic discourse
There is a terrible new development in Medievalism. A push from activists to completely ban the use of the word Anglo-Saxon.
It started with grievance monger Rambaran-Olm complaining that Anglo-Saxon is was racist and exclusionary and that AS studies are too white. Her blogs and complaints resulted in the International Society of Anglo-Saxonists (ISAS) agreeing to change its name.
